Child safety is a major concern in any society due to the vulnerability of a child and consequently, higher rates of crimes against children. With this issue on our hands, a smart wearable Internet of Things sensor network for monitoring the environment of a child can be developed to help parents ensure the safety of their children. It must also necessarily include a mechanism for tracking the child. An advantage of this wearable device is that, according to its design, it can be accessed from any mobile device and does not mandate a lot of technical knowledge from the user to operate. The purpose of this device is to facilitate the guardian or parents in locating their child with ease and ensuring its well-being. The basic mechanism of this system involves monitoring the environment through sensor nodes, acquiring real-time data and transmitting this data to a cloud server. The data can be accessed by users through a web-based interface present on this cloud server. The wearable also functions to send alerts to the user through a mobile application in case an emergency condition is detected by it. The design of this model involves developing a medium for communication between the parent/guardian and the child’s wearable device. The child’s location is tracked using GSM mobile communication to specify the location of the child in real-time. We have surveyed relevant papers and have discussed about the different methodologies that have been used to achieve similar but different results. We later also compare these papers using their advantages and disadvantages and we try to bring out the uses from their results.
